Marshland (La isla mínima)


Presented by the Instituto Cervantes

Spain. Dir. Alberto Rodríguez. 2014, 105 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles. With Javier Gutiérrez, Raúl Arévalo. A moody, noir-tinged mystery unfolds amidst the political unrest of post-Franco Spain in this riveting Spanish thriller. Based on a true story, the film follows two mismatched detectives from Madrid dispatched to the forbidding marshlands of Southern Spain to investigate the disappearance of two teenage sisters. However, it soon becomes clear that they are dealing not with a missing persons case, but with a serial killer. Awash in an atmosphere of pervasive dread, Marshland is “a brilliant, compelling edge-of-your-seat detective thriller infused with a spirit of uncanny gothic redolent of David Lynch and David Fincher” (Sight & Sound).
